Before we start, let us introduce ourselves. He's Jon, she's Jac, nice to meet you!
What the heck is Doxa?
Doxa (pronounced dox'-ah) is the ancient Greek word for Glory. We believe that anything we do creatively, or ordinarily, in our lives has the potential to Glorify our God. That includes celebrating marriage, serving you as a couple, taking great pictures, and working together as a married couple ourselves.
What are your prices?
We like to keep things simple and see-through, so we've got two amazing packages:
For $4,000 you get our full feature Photography package, with two photographer and lots of laughs. Read more here
For $5,000 you get our new Photo + Video package with all the photo goodness we normally deliver, plus a creative video that'll really tug on those heart strings. Read more here
There’s no hidden costs like travel, accommodation or editing (unless we’re travelling out of the state, can you book your wedding in Iceland? Please…)
Do you offer Elopement packages?
YES! and we love them!
*We consider an elopement 3ish hours, no bridal party, less than 20 guests and on a week day.
Photography only (1 photographer Jac) $1800
Photography + Videography (Jac + Jon) $3000
Do we get both photographers?
You sure do! We’re a team, a package deal, both having strengths that make what we do possible. Two sets of eyes (and cameras) makes for more opportunity for beautiful shots!
Do you do videography as well?
Yes! Check out the videography tab up the top. Basically we transform Jon into a videographer for the day and Jac still photographs. This is our most exciting venture so far and one that is becoming very popular.
I've already booked a photographer, can I get Jon to just do video?
Unfortunately no, part of what makes us special is our seamless working relationship, Jon is introverted and works best when given the creative freedom to roam and be himself. What Jac (the extrovert) does is manage the day while she photographs it, making sure Jon is getting all the shots he needs and having the time to get them, before moving onto the next thing (all while barely speaking a word.) While we may offer solo videography eventually, at this stage it's both of us, or neither of us.
We really want you BOTH to photograph, so do you work with other videographers?
YES and we love it! Ask us for a list and we will give you some of the best names in Tassie and beyond.
Please, please, please don't just book someone because they are cheap or throwing out a hefty discount on facebook. It might seem like you're getting a good deal, but we've had some nightmares over the years. Not all photographers and videographers shoot the same way, we don't all have the same philosophy when it comes to imagery. Its REALLY important that the two creative teams mesh well on your day, or it can really affect how smoothly it runs, how long it all takes and how well you enjoy yourselves. Flick us an email and ask for our recommendations, we can give you a list that caters for everyones taste, style and budget! There are so many awesome people out there!
How do we book you?
First thing you need to know is that we don't make a habit of booking more than 12mths in advance. We understand that this is pretty annoying for some of you ultra-organised folk, but we have a young family and only plan our working lives about a year in advance and have no clue what life will hold 2-3 years from now.
Second thing is we don't book every wedding that comes through. Weekends with our kids are precious to us. We only have a select few weekends that we fill each year - about 20 - so we want to make sure that we can do the best job we possibly can with those weddings. It means that we need to make sure that we are the right fit for YOUR day. We are not everyone's cup of tea, but we want to be YOUR cup of tea, or coffee, we like both :)
Third thing is that we don't hold dates. We catch up with every couple before we book (whether its face to face or Skype) This is mainly to give us a chance to put faces to the names, but also because we respect that your wedding is a super personal thing and we want to get to know you as best we can before we spend the day with you. So, once you've met us and you decide that you like us, we give you a week to read and sign the documents provided, and deposit the non-refundable retainer. If you are tardy with any of this, unfortunately your spot may be given to someone else.
Fourth thing, we'd love you to read "the Doxument" before you sign that contract. We'll send you a copy once we've caught up. It's full of handy tips and tricks for your day, but the main thing it does is allow you to understand how we work with each other and also with you. We believe that weddings are sacred and we want to make sure that we can serve you and help you have the best day possible, but also be 100% authentic to who we are as artists.
This is where the balance and the magic is. The perfect match :)
Do you do LGBTIQ+ weddings?
Abso-freaking-lutely. We feel a little sad that we even need this question listed, but unfortunately people often see that we are Christian and assume that we follow the stereotype. We love Jesus, and that means we love to love everyone. We want to use our gifts to be able to bless you and give you tangible memories that we hope will last a lifetime.
How are our images delivered?
We use a great service called CloudSpot. We upload your photos into a private online gallery for you to see in all their glory! From there you can "Like" your favourites, share them on social media, or just download the whole lot to peruse at your leisure. It's very handy for sharing with family and friends!
Do you offer engagement/pre-wedding shoots?
We sure do! And we highly recommend booking one for several reasons. Firstly, you’ll get a selection of stunning images that you can use to SHOUT TO THE WORLD that you’re getting married or simply in love! It’s also a great chance for us to work together before your big day. We’ll teach you how to feel comfortable in front of the camera. Sessions are $500 if you've booked us for your wedding day, $750 if you haven't.
Can we meet you for coffee?
We thought you’d never ask! We love both Coffee, even more so when it’s with a couple planning their big adventure. Hit up the contact form below, drop us a line and we’ll organise a time; as always it's our shout!
